The mission of Agape Way is to meet the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of men, women and children who are poor, experiencing homelessness and needy. Every Sunday morning, volunteers with Pebble Tossers meet other Agape Way volunteers to serve a hot breakfast and distribute blankets, clothing and etc. to those in need. This December 21, Agape Way is hosting its 6th Annual Christmas in the Streets event. Last year we served 200 meals and provided over 100 kids with gifts thanks to the generosity of joyful givers.Gifts that have been donated will be used to stock the shelves for the Christmas Shop this year. Tables full of gifts will be arranged by age group and then there will be a gift-wrapping station where parents can have the gifts wrapped. As well this shop allows parents to get gifts for their kids that they would otherwise be unable to provide them with. Everything we collect is given away at no cost to the families we serve. Volunteers are needed to set up, help with shopping and gift wrapping presents.
